The adventures of Sky King, a modern flying rancher, made it to radio in the last days of afternoon children's programming. Sponsored by Peter Pan Butter, the program's announcer was a young Mike Wallace. Jack Lester was King. The show alternated with Jack Armstrong twice a week at 5:30 p.m
. The TV version with Kirby Grant would obliviate all memory of an earlier show with baby boomers of the Fifties.
